If you’re coming up to the stage of needing to sell your home, you need to make sure you’re getting rid of any faults that you might have. Your home is going to be filled with more than you’re going to want to believe, so make sure you do your checking. The main fault that people seem to have is a problem with their plumbing, and you can bet your bottom dollar that the week before your viewing starts you’ll have something go majorly wrong with your plumbing. If this happens, just deal with the problem as and when. The more you stress, the more things will go wrong. The quicker you sort, the quicker you can make money. Even the little things that you might have problems with, such as a sink that refuses to drain, they all need be sorted. If by any chance at all the people viewing your house try something like that and it doesn’t work, it could only put them off your home. If you have problems such as mold, they definitely need to be sorted rather than covered up. The people viewing the house can bring people in to make sure there are no signs of things like mold, so you don’t want them finding that!


Add Some Value


Add some value to your home by adding space. Space is the best way to do it, even if it means you’re going to be spending a fortune doing a little bit of renovation work. For example, you could look at adding a conservatory. These are a great little addition that everyone loves. It gives potential buyers that extra bit of space to turn into whatever they want, or just as a little chill out room.


Viewing Ready


To be viewing ready, you just need to make sure everywhere is clean and presentable. The more time you put in to make sure the house is spotless, the more buyers you’re going to attract. Clean every nook and cranny and find all of the bits you might usually miss, that potential buyers wouldn’t. Another good selling point is to make sure the house smells nice when you have people around. Light a candle, spray a bit of air freshener, and make sure you get rid of any unwanted smells.
